The easiest way to connect will probably be to simply get a bridge, similar to the WET11. Get an antenna for it, and point it at us. I am currently on sflan7_0 and have great signal and got a dhcp address.

I've just picked up sflan7_0 & sflan7_1, couldn;t get a lease off of either, but the signal was much better than off of sflan11 which must be 2 miles from me across the valley. Are both these AP's functional?

So I'm getting a DHCP addy off sflan7_0 now - if i can get his node working for me this solves all my problems. Anyway here's what I'm getting when I try to ping:

Hi all,

We were able to pick up sflan7_0 from 5th and Harrison last night with a high gain omni on the roof... yay!

However, we're currently using an old Aironet AP4800 (circa 1995, from back before Cisco bought aironet!) and it doesn't appear to support bridging very well. We _were_ able to make it associate with sflan7_0 (with root mode turned off) and it assigned itself a DHCP address, but the fun stopped there. My laptop wasn't able to get an IP, and nothing on the ethernet segment worked either. This is with the latest 8.80 firmware for the 4800 off of Cisco's site.

So my questions are:

- Has anybody else had any luck using an old AP4800E in this capacity?

- What cheap access points _do_ support bridging and have the same type of antenna connector that the Aironet/Cisco units use? (Or alternatively, what is cheap and works well and what kind of adapter (from Reverse-TNC) would we need to use the cable and antenna?) A friend recommended the Linksys, but it would be nice to hear some success stories from people bridging to a local LAN before buying!

Thanks all,
sage
